Stamp duty is a percentage of the purchase price paid to the state government to process the property ownership transfer. It is a charge that’s payable in every Australian state and territory – Victoria, NSW, Queensland, WA, SA, Tasmania, ACT and Northern Territory – and the cost varies depending on where you live and your circumstances (whether you’re a first home buyer, investor or owner-occupier).
This list gives you an example of the stamp duty that could apply to the purchase of a $400,000 property in each state.
These are estimates only, and you should check with your State Revenue Office for confirmation. If you have any questions about stamp duty, Book in a quick call with our customer care team
